The Goal Need for Program

In Australia, hepatic disease is the 11th most common cause of early death. There are a wide range of other liver diseases, some of which are very complex and life reducing. For instance, liver cancer is the most rapidly increasing cause of cancer death in Australia today. Liver disease can affect every organ system in the body because of the complexity of liver function. These relationships make clinical assessment difficult and confusing - particularly because early manifestations of liver disease may be subtle. Given the diversity of liver disease it is likely that most nurses will care for acute and chronically unwell people with this condition. Evidenced knowledge relating to prevention as well as management of the condition will assist nurses to achieve best patient outcomes.

Purpose of Program

Assist a person to avert long term liver disease through preventative measures
